Gandalf's quick look to Frodo's, "we" is exactly why ExpLoTR is so awesome. I saw some folks in the general chat that weren't stoked on the extended boulder talk but it's all about the journey not the end! To me, the long boulder talks make the "quick look"-esque gems even better. But I'm weird and enjoy intricate discussions about Tolkien stuff, no matter how seemingly insignificant.
"We'll get to that in 10 years." - Prof. Olsen last class regarding Sam in Mordor. ha! So awesome. So stoked to be a part of this long game.
"That we should wish to cast him down and have no one in his place is not a thought that occurs to his mind."
So... what happened when the site went down for the last day or so?

From the unofficial Signum facebook group, it seems as if the hosting server went down. Not entirely clear as to why.
Can't hear Corey on Twitch. And when we hear him, no Trish or Dave.

Have you considered just joining the Webinar?

I hadn't, since I've been busy for the first hour or so of the session and couldn't listen in until then because of my schedule.
Ok... this looks ... weird...

Huh... it seems that there is some new functionality.

Yeah, I don't like this at all. But mostly because it looks generic and weird. I hope once I get used to it it won't be so frustrating (as you say, on a phone is not exactly user friendly).

Well, it gets slightly better, I have some hope that one can get used to it.
Ok so I saw the Muppet Game of Thrones thing. You could say I now fully understand the Elmo issue.

Yeah....the problem is that Elmo is a very, very popular children's character here in the States, appearing on Sesame Street since the 1980s, but having his own show aimed at 3 year olds as well. So, practically anyone who has ever interacted with a kid is very familiar with his tone of voice and way of talking. It's not just that he's a red muppet....

I saw Sesame Street as a kid as well, but I guess it was different. I mean, it was all Swedish voice acting, of course, but I never saw Elmo (I guess it was because this was earlier, in the 1970's).
